Personal Statement

I often work with people who are going through life's transitions.  I play two roles, one as a Psychotherapist and another as a Collaborative Divorce Coach. Psychotherapy is a life-giving process that heals wounds and explores new ways to find more contentment in life. Often people come in highly distressed because age-old reactions to stress and to our complex world in general, don't work as well anymore. My job as a Psychotherapist is to assess, explore and help clients find new ways to respond to naturally occurring events and to past, present and future traumas. Clients create new strategies to improve not only how they feel but how their lives can be more satisfying.

Collaborative Divorce Coaching is a role in which I asses the couple, the children and the family who are entering the divorce process. Along with a team of attorneys and financial professionals, I help spouses find new and creative ways to manage their separation of property and finances, as well as to develop an effective and healthy co-parenting plan. Collaborative Divorce focuses on future planning for the entire family while the Coach facilitates and supports progress and growth through this very difficult time.
